The Rocky Mountain Map Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and appreciation of maps and other items of cartographic interest. The Society was formed in 1991 and is based in Denver, Colorado.  Upcoming meetings, past events and other information can be found at the tabs above. We hope to see you soon!

Due to the Coronavirus, Rocky Mountain Map Society offers hybrid programming (a mix of in-person and online talks). Come join us in our new venue, History Colorado, AND on Zoom to learn about maps from the comfort of your own home!


  • Between the many map societies, as well as conferences and academic organizations, it may seem overwhelming to keep track of dates and times of upcoming map lectures.  Thankfully, there's a master list of map events available, courtesy of John Docktor, Washington Map Society.

    If you were unable to join our November 9th program via Zoom, or had trouble with sound or visuals, please let Naomi Heiser know. We are working with History Colorado staff to improve our hybrid programming.

  • We hope you had a good summer and we're looking forward to seeing you at Rocky Mountain Map Society programs again.  We'll be offering hybrid programs in a new venue this season!  History Colorado has generously offered in-person space in their Research Center, and they'll be broadcasting and recording our programs as well. Hope to see you soon! 

  • The Rocky Mountain Map Society has a YouTube Page now! Past talks are available to view whenever you like. Check it out!
